What clients have taught me over 19 years in practice is that to be genuinely heard and understood is such a lost art in our busy technological world. This is true whether we are deeply hurt as the result of relational trauma, painfully grieving due to a loss of meaningful attachment caused by death or divorce, or simply at our "wit's end" trying to cope with the uncertainty that comes from living with a spouse or a child diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. It is during these tumultuous times that we often yearn for "another" who can professionally provide a soft place to fall and a context to be psychologically held.
My approach is to create an inviting therapeutic environment where you can feel safe and start to make sense of any internal confusion. It is a process that also helps you become more educated about yourself and others. Understanding the unique link between the ways we think, feel and behave ....and how that integrated insight can go a long way towards psychological growth.... is truly what makes my professional position such a privileged place of connection.
I have been educated within a Psychodynamic/Attachment Theoretical Orientation. A focal point of my work is in understanding internalized family patterns, especially as they relate to attachment style and the full spectrum of emotion. While we are not able to change difficult situations from the past, we can begin to explain and "make sense" of them together so that the future begins to look and feel more hopeful.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you want to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to meeting and working together.
